Anyone want to guess how much for this upcoming DX version (or is it too much for a headache to process)?

Speculation time.........

As a stand alone set 17-18k yen and not more than 23k yen, based on what's released before.

Bundle pricing no less than 35k yen.

My speculation reply from Page 1:

VF-1J's MSRP was Y18000/19800(JPY tax). VF-1 Strike/Super Parts was Y8000/Y8800(JPY tax). Since GBP has more plastic and paint details than Strike/Super Parts but somehow less compared with VF-31S Armor at Y16000/Y17600(JPY tax), let's estimate the price for GBP, if it's just the parts, somewhere around Y14000-15000. If it's bundled, then we're just playing with a total of Y33000+/-. Which in today's US$ conversion, it's $303.

I think it's going to be GBP 15K¥ and separate Gray Goggle VF-1J 18¥. Maybe that's just what I'm hoping as the idea of including a head with the GBP is a turn-off.... although maybe that explains why Max was shown with a separate GBP... they would include paired heads with each custom like they did with the wings on the 171 and its super parts.

The normal pattern is that there is at least a week between a formal item announcement and the PO, During that waiting period, it shows up in the Macross section of the Tamashii Nations site as a full entry, not just as a teaser picture:

The one major exception has been the TV Super Parts, where we only got about a day to prepare. I really hope Bandai doesn't do that again.

That means late May 2nd/early 3rd will be the highly crazy pre-order madness to start.

Does this ring a bell anyone? ;)

Since this is the first product out since Harmony Gold allowed sales of Macross related stuff outside of Japan, does this mean we can buy it directly off Tamashii website, if we are not in japan?  #falsehope

Is the deal with Harmony Gold for all Macross merchandise or just the movies and series videos?

Not this one as of now @mantisfists.  I think @jvmacross mentioned that the ink was applied in March and some further legal addendums needed to be sorted out for both parties to agree on.

I cannot read, but does it say anything about a rerelease of the VF-1J?

it looks great, but if no rerelease, it would suck for those of us without one already, or $400+ to track one down.

Honestly, that title should go to Seto Kaiba.....I'm more of an obtainer of rare Macross antiquities....

I think your title should be Super Dimensional Curator

The good news for people that don't have a VF-1J is that it doesn't REALLY matter now.

You could use a more accessible VF-1S Hikaru, and the only difference would be the wing stripe color if seen from the back.

So get any DX, swap the head and you've got a GPB VF-1J :)

Video not available in the USA.

The video clip is just the episode when the armor set appeared with 3 commercial breaks with the same info pics that's posted.

Edit: I used my VPN and switched to Japan to watch it.
